“Cycling on the Edge”

published 28/08/2006

ProMany many functions, training centre info

ConsInfo overload, price, rubbish standard map

My other half is what you'd call a keen cyclist - he cycles about 25 miles a day commuting to work, and frequently goes on weekend training rides too. He's got a couple of cycle computers that show things like the time, distance, speed, and similar, but had been hankering after a Garmin cycle...

“"Edge"ing your bets.”

published 10/04/2006

ProFlexibility, Features, Size, Motivation


It never ceases to amaze me how things get increasingly complicated over time. Cars, telephones, stereos, televisions... they've all become more complicated since they were first invented.

“Garmin Edge 205”

published 22/12/2006


ConsDelicate, poor reception.

I'm a keen mountain biker and I live in South Wales. Having used numerous cycle computers, I decided to go the whole hog and get something that would enable me not only to work out how far I'd been and at what speed, but also enable me to work out how much climbing I'd done, and to plot my route...

Fantastic gadget for the cyclist. GPS tracking to record where you cycle and data which can be uploaded to various programs or the garmin motionbased web site. It can monitor your heartrate and set target heartrate zones to help improve fitness.

ProTraining data, lots of features


I bought the 205 second hand due to the steep price when it's new. I think I've been quite lucky and it's been hardly used by the previous owner. Battery seems to last well over 7 - 8 hours between charges. The sattelite reception is good but sometimes takes a few minutes when finding reception...
